1oz Sweet Earth Tallow Balm | Ancestral Skin Care
Materials: Grassfed Beef Tallow, Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Organic Carrot Seed Oil
Volume: 1 fluid ounces
Imagine the smell of the earth that nourishes the lovely and delicate Queen Anne’s Lace flowered plant.
Organic Carrot Seed Oil (Daucus carota) imparts a sweet grounding scent to this nourishing tallow balm and is recommended for people with mature skin although anyone can use it - with one exception...
Not for Use During Pregnancy!!!
This product is not recommended for use during pregnancy due to the carrot seed oil which acts as an emmenagogue (In other words- an agent that promotes menstrual discharge)!!!
Essential Oil Note: Various sources claim differing levels of safety for essential oil use on children this warning is only meant to inform; essential oil use during pregnancy is more uniformly cautioned due to the concentration of constituents contained in essential oils. When in doubt contact your midwife, doctor or medical practitioner!

Some people do not care for the scent of tallow. If you do not like the scent of the suet used for birdseed treats you may not care for the scent of tallow.
Tallow, as with all oils, can get into clothing. Allow to absorb into skin before touching your clothing. If it gets into your clothes check out this useful all-natural stain treatment blog post by Katie of Wellness Mama: https://wellnessmama.com/3615/stain-treatment-reference/
Since this is a handcrafted product made in small batches variances in color and scent concentration may occur.
How to Use:
By nature tallow is as hard as wax at room temperature so we recommend using the back of your thumbnail to scrape a small amount of Tallowed Touch out of the jar with the back of your clean thumb, rub between your palms to warm and then work into your skin.

How Our Products are Made
Locally sourced 100% grass-fed beef tallow from Hickory Nut Gap Farm® is first rendered and then organic extra virgin olive oil is added for spreadability. Finally high quality certified organic essential oils are used to add scent and beneficial properties to the Tallow Balm.
Enjoy a soothing Tallow Balm that you can put all over your body!
Infused Tallowed Touch is a special tallow balm that has fragrant organic plant matter like vanilla beans or rose petals infused directly into locally sourced 100% grass-fed beef tallow. This achieves a deeper complexity of scent than with essential oils alone.
Enjoy a truly unique tallow balm with Infused Tallowed Touch!
Tallowed Kiss Tallow Lip Balms (once named Tallowed Touch Tallow Lip Balms) are also made with 100% grass-fed beef tallow from Hickory Nut Gap Farm®, but instead of using olive oil I use organic castor oil and beeswax to give the lip balms a lip-hugging, long-lasting feel. As with my tallow balms I use high quality, certified organic essential oils to add scent and beneficial properties to my tallow lip balms. Infused Tallowed Kiss Tallow Lip Balms have organic vanilla beans, rose petals or cinnamon infused directly into the tallow for a richer, more intoxicating flavor.
Enjoy our long-lasting, lip-hugging Tallowed Kiss Tallow Lip Balms!
Tallow Balm Tips + Extra Info
For Cold Weather:
If the weather outside is cold then warm your tallow lip balm tube between your palms before attempting to put in on your lips in order to help soften your lip-hugging product! You can also hold the balm to your lips a moment to make it easier to spread.
If you do neither of these things you may find that your lip balm crumbles. If that happens just return the clean pieces to the tube and use a bit to melt on your lips. No problem!
For Warm/Hot Weather:
If the weather is hot do not leave me in your car or pocket!
Though I am not likely to completely liquefy, what parts of me do soften will hasten the demise of my lovely biodegradable tube. For that reason, while I am in your pocket or purse, keeping me in a small reused baggie or the cellophane wrapper that I came in will be sure that I do not stain anything with my lovely moisturizing fats.
Size & Longevity
Our 6ml tubes contain approximately 5% more lip balm than regular plastic tubes and our amazing tallow balm lasts far longer because you do not need to use as much.
Biodegradable Paper Tubes
Feel even better about purchasing our Tallowed Touch Tallow Lip Balms because they are carefully packaged in biodegradable and compostable paper tubes. You don’t have to feel ANY guilt about buying another plastic lip balm tube that will sit around polluting our Mother Earth for the next 18 generations or more!
The Good Stuff
Include Whole Food Ingredients
Made with Almost All Organic Ingredients
NO Artificial Ingredients
NO Synthetic Fragrances
Biodegradable, Compostable, Recyclable or Reusable Packaging

WOW...I am in love with Sweet Earth Tallow Balm for my dry and sensitive hands. I just ordered two more ; ) I am an artist, I love to cook, and winter's cold--or even any season--is not a friend to my hands. However, this product keeps my hands so happy and my ordinarily dry and chapped hands are repaired by using this product. It is not greasy; I can get right into my work without a problem after using the product. Thank you MotherMakings for a great product!
This gift set is so cute! I purchased it for my sister after falling in love with Maggie's Tallow balm products. I have to confess that I kept one of the lip balms for myself, and I am BLOWN away at how much I love it. I originally thought 100% Grassfed Beef Tallow might be a little gross in lip balm, but I am so wrong! It feels luxurious and reminds me a bit of Burt's Bees, but is WAY more effective for dry, chapped lips. I highly recommend!! The gift bag is perfect, and Maggie's products are top notch quality. I'm excited to share with my sister. I'm a lifelong customer and so glad to have found Tallow from Maggie @ MotherMakings!
The Naked Tallow Balm already feels SO good on my skin that I'm back to order another batch! Fast shipping and adorable packaging. I admire the owner of this shop along with her writing, products, and her mission to help others. Thank you!
One of the best things that happened this year is finding Tallow balm from MotherMakings! I've had severe eczema, psoriasis, and spongiotic dermatitis on my hands, ankle, legs, and feet for YEARS. I have tried everything and have been hoping to taper off steroid creams and Tacrolimus immunomodulator creams. I have several auto-immune conditions (including Crohn's, which limits my ability to absorb fat). I started with the Tallowed Touch Naked balm and LOVED IT. Maggie included a sample of the Palmarosa Tallow Balm, which I also loved! I promptly ordered another supply of both. The natural fat from the 100% Grassfed Beef is slowly strengthening my skin, and I've had no negative reactions from any of her products (which is rare for me when trying new products). Maggie is a gem, and I'm so happy to have found her healing shop!
